Sevastopol residents are invited to take part in the festival “The whole family plays table tennis”
In Sevastopol, from February 1 to March 17, the festival “The whole family plays table tennis” will be held, dedicated to the Year of the Family. The organizer is the Sevastopol Table Tennis Federation «Omega» together with the autonomous non-profit organization «Council of Fathers of Sevastopol».
The objectives of the festival are to form a family culture of sports life, improve the quality of life through physical activity, increase the proportion of citizens systematically involved in physical culture and sports, and others.
Leading athletes of Sevastopol will conduct master classes for table tennis fans. This will not be a professional sport, it will be for amateurs. We will conduct training sessions, and at the end of the festival we will hold competitions, which will be held in doubles, where both parents and children will play, so that it is a team game and not an individual one. We will distribute the participants into several age groups so that we have approximately equal strength, that is, children under 13, under 16, under 20, — the press service of the Government of Sevastopol quotes the vice-president of the Sevastopol Table Tennis Federation «Omega» Yuri Gromyak.
Table tennis classes for festival participants will be held at two main locations: in the hall on the territory of the Lukomorye eco-park and in the Papa Center Sevastopol resource center. The final competition will take place at the Fishermen’s Palace of Culture.
Even from the name of the festival it is already clear that this event should be worthy, that fathers, mothers, and grandfathers should be interested, because table tennis allows everyone to play in any conditions — summer, winter, every day,” notes Vladimir Veselkin, Chairman of the Olympic Council of Sevastopol, Honored Worker of Physical Culture of Russia.
